Mayumi Enoki is born in Hiroshima and lives and works in Okayama City, Japan.
Enoki grasps with the mind of or develops an understanding of things or a phenomenon, which is hidden in the day-to-day activities with a delicate gaze and creates works with the most suitable method for the sense of a piece.
The starting point of her works overlaps everyday life as stacking and layering; putting on a plate and a sheet of paper on a press, overprinting colors, piling thin paper, stacking dishes on a table, folding clothes. 
For ideas to finish pieces, she has represented her work in various forms such as monoprints, intaglio printings, collage, and drawing.
Not only an impressive event but a moment is a particle of residues of time and space, which has been stacking our life over. By taking on a broader meaning as stacking out a gap, we can pay attention to relationships and involve in-between as phenomena. 
While stacking, shifting or moving a piece and everyday objects, she involves her works as the artist's own living time and space. It conveys what she thinks or how she spends every day in her studio.
By standing on in-between at the momentarily changing, a folded feeling in our memory spreads slowly likewise to stretch thin feathers.
